The Book of Zgierz - An Eternal Memorial for a Jewish Community of Poland is the translation of the Yizkor (Memorial) Book published in Tel Aviv in 1975 in Hebrew by survivors and former residents of the town. It details through personal accounts the destruction of the Jewish community by the Nazis and their collaborators in World War II. This publication by the “Yizkor Books in Print Project” of JewishGen, Inc., serves to provide the English speaking community with these first-hand accounts in book format, so that researchers and descendants of Jewish emigrants from the town can learn this history.

The town is also known as: Zgierz [Pol], Zgerzh [Yid], Zgezh [Rus], Görnau [Ger, 1943-45], Zgerzsh, Zgiezh, Zgyerz
